Friends of the Library:
Friends of NPL (Newport Public Library) is a non-profit support group that is separate from the library. Friends promote the use of the library and provide funds for its programs and activities as well as purchase equipment and books to enhance the use of the facilities. Funds come from memberships, donations, and fund raising events. Joining the Friends of NPL means that you are a part of the financial support that supplements the needs of the library not covered by the library’s annual budget. Friends of NPL sponsors and staffs the used book sales in February, May, August, and November, support other library programs with refreshments and donations, and sponsor programs of interest to the community. If you have a special interest you would like to see promoted or if you are willing to help organize an event or program, please let us know. We are always in need of people who can lend a hand.
